Mastercraftsman and Again were Danehill Dancer's two Group One winners last year, and they give the sire an Irish Guineas double. His other European Group One winners are Miss Beatrix, Speciosa and Choisir. The winning prize money catapults the son of Danehill past Galileo in the European sires' list.
